Description
 
Donald Keene. This is the intimate & inspiring story of the man who has brought the works of Japanís greatest writers to worldwide attention through his highly acclaimed writings, translations, & anthologies. It is the deeply personal story of his remarkable life -- from a Depression-era childhood through his wartime experiences as a naval intelligence officer in the Pacific, his early enchantment with the now-vanished world of old Kyoto, & the diverse & lasting friendships he made in New York, Japan, & England. Includes illuminating anecdotes about such writers as Yukio Mishima, Yasunari Kawabata, Kenzaburo Oe, & Kobo Abe.
